NOAA watching tropical wave near Dominican

Computer models July 20, 8 p.m. of potential Tropical Storm Bonnie

Alerts are being issued for a potential tropical storm that could potentially go anywhere from as far south as the tip of Cuba to the center of Florida. Currently the wave, described as “vigorous” by NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), is producing a large number of storms and conditions are such that there is a 60 percent chance of the system becoming a tropical depression or storm by Thursday evening, with early maps showing a potential Friday landfall somewhere in South Florida. The storm could potentially be Tropical Storm Bonnie.

Track it here and here.
